and crony in damascus. >> sreenivasan: in washington, defense secretary leon panetta confirmed the u.s. has intelligence that shows the syrian regime has moved some of its chemical weapons to better secure them. he also said the major stockpiles at main sites are believed to be secure. in august, president obama threatened u.s. action if syria moves or uses its chemical weapons. meanwhile, in syria, the battle for control of the northern city of aleppo intensified as rebels made their broadest push yet to drive assad's forces out. heavy clashes were reported with government troops firing tank and mortar shells, while rebels fought back with heavy machine guns, mortars and rocket- propelled grenades. it was the heaviest fighting the city has seen in two months. in iraq, some 80 inmates, including al qaeda militants, escaped from a prison. the jailbreak happened overnight in tikrit after several convicts seized weapons from a prison storeroom. they clashed with security guards for hours before overpowering them and breaking free. a dozen people were killed, including ten guards. iraqi officia
but they really break down into two cases. first, challenges involving the federal defense of marriage act, a key provision defines marriage for all federal purposes as between a man and a woman. and then the second set involves california's proposition 8. that proposition bannedded same sex marriage in california. >> brown: wading into an area where states are voting all the time on. >> absolutely. railroad referendums on a number of state ballots involving same sex marriage. >> brown: just a couple of other cases we might see. civil rights. voting rights act of 1965. >> yes. there are challenges to what is considered the crown jewel of the civil rights movement. section 5 of the 1965 voting rights act requires jurisdictions that have a history of past discrimination in voting to get pre-approval from the justice department or a federal court in washington whenever they make changes in their voting practices. that secon... that section is bg challenged in two cases although the court hasn't said it would review them. also we may see section 5 being challenged in cases involving voter i.d. laws.
the time he probably wants to put romney on defense for some of this. he probably also wants to address the idea that this disappointment in his economic performance and make the case as he's been making and his campaign appearances that he inherited a difficult situation, things are moving in the right direction although he understands people are still hurting. >> woodruff: how do you see what the obama camp believes they've got to do? >> susan is right. they don't want to be on the defensive. they don't want to make the mistake. you know, this is the kind of campaign where mitt rom needs to do more than have a draw. he needs to make a case. i think it's going to be awfully hard for him to close the imp thee gap given the context of "washington post" had an empathy gap. he has to change the dynamic. it's up to the president to answer each and all of the charges. so far the obama campaign has done a good job in talking about whose fault is the economy and how they have tried to respond. >> woodruff: what does it mean to change the dynamic of the race though? that sounds like a big task.
pretty clearly it was a terrorist attack. >> brown: at the pentagon today, defense secretary leon panetta seemed to have little doubt about what happened at the u.s. consulate in libya more than two weeks ago. >> a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate and against our individuals. what terrorists were involved, i think, remains to bdetermined by an investigation, but it clearly was a group of terrorists who conducted that attack against the facility. >> brown: what seemed clear today, though, had seemed less so just days ago. the original explanation for what happened the evening of september 11 was that an america-made movie denigrating islam had incited a mob, which had then stormed the u.s. consulate in benghazi. that attack left four americans dead, including u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stephens. but in the weeks since, even as protests spread across the muslim world over the anti- muslim film, a chorus of doubt grew over whether militant extremists, including al qaeda , had planned the attack to coincide with september 11. and the entire issu
in sport. but the new age crowd says well, miguel cab rare, a he can't run to save his live, his defense is average, all he can do is hit the ball. well, isn't that the basis of the game? you have to hit the ball to score a run. so it's a very passionate debate but a lot of people think if you won the triple crown how can you not be the m.v.p.? especially -- because without miguel cabrera the detroit tigers would not be opening in the american league playoffs on saturday and mike trout's team aren't in the playoffs. >> brown: detroit has a very successful name the playoffs. detroit has had a rough patch for a long time. what role do the tigers play at a moment like this? >> an important role. i'm a born and raised in this town and i've known detroiters live vicariously and that's basically all that we have in a lot of respects that we can embrace and take pride in. so when the teams do well it lifts everyone's spirits. they have three million people buying tickets for the tigers game this year and detroit's economy isn't all that good right now but that tells you how passionate these peo
60 or 70 million people. the president did not play to offense or defense wednesday night. he didn't defend himself against charges that mitt romney made of his administration that have been fact checked time and again on the president's side. and he didn't play offense. he didn't give a sense where he wanted to go. judy, vice presidential debate does matter because the democrats can't lose two in a row. they really can't. i think joe biden is in a stronger position because he has spent a lot of time, four years, defending, explaining and making the case for barack obama whereas paul ryan is in an awkward position. he's going to defend, make the case to mitt romney whom he has basically been joined to the hip at six weeks ago. and you know, he's got the whole independent political identity himself. i mean biden obama as a team at this point. but i think that the president, is just going to forget the first debate and be ready in the second one to make his case. and to engage. he wasn't ingauged. if you turn down the sound on wednesday night and just watch tho two people, he is did
